Step 1: Write down all your favourite foods.
Make sure to keep this list close to your kitchen, so you’ll have it when you’re craving cheat foods, but you’re not sure what to eat. You’ll be able to use this list to tempt you.
I find it hard to cheat well – especially as time goes on, I forget the foods I once craved for. A bonus when you go shopping, less losing your way into the centre aisles of the food market.
But, if you want to keep your fat busting hormones on side you can’t restrict calories everyday. To avoid starvation mode you need to have a planned re-feed or cheat day. To begin it might be a meal where you have a little alcohol, a pudding and the Meal itself might be less than ideal – health wise.
But remember the whole point isn’t to eat carefully or to count calories – it’s to help your body relax, to persuade your fat controlling hormones that food is available and so release stored fat as energy on the days following your cheat day.
These might be some of your favourite cheat foods – make a FULL and REAL list put on the inside of your food journal, so you can take inspiration when you make your cheat day shopping list!
Eat Clean. Live Well. Feel Great!
